Love Is Like A Butterfly

Dolly Parton

© Owepar Music, BMI

Love is like a butterfly as soft and gentle as a sigh
The multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings
Love makes your heart feel strange inside it flutters like soft wings in flight
Love is like a butterfly a rare and gentle thing

I feel it when you're with me it happens when you kiss me
That rare and gentle feeling that I feel inside
Your touch is soft and gentle your kiss is warm and tender
Whenever I am with you I think of butterflies

Love is like a butterfly
The multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings
Love makes your heart feel strange inside it flutters like soft wings in flight
Love is like a butterfly a rare and gentle thing

Your laughter brings me sunshine every day is springtime
And I am only happy when you are by my side
How precious is this love we share how very precious sweet and rare
Together we belong like daffodils and butterflies

Love is like a butterfly as soft and gentle as a sigh...
Love is like a butterfly a rare and gentle thing

If I Cross Your Mind

Porter Wagoner

© Porter Music, BMI

If I cross your mind please let me cross it slowly
Let me stop and reminisce with you for a while
And if I cross your mind please remember all the good things
Think of me as happiness if I cross your mind

There must be a million thoughts rushing through your mind
And if there's one of me love among them that you find
Please stop for just a little while and treat it extra kind
When you think of me love if I cross your mind

If you must hide my mem'ry when you're with someone else
Then make mine very special when you're by yourself
But only in a mem'ry can one turn back the time
To lovely tender moments that linger in my mind

There must be a million thoughts rushing through your mind...
Think of only good things if I cross your mind

My Eyes Only See You

Dolly Parton

© Owepar Music, BMI

When your eyes meet mine my heart beats out of time
And I burn with desire through and through
I can't help myself I can't see no one else
Cause my eyes can only see you

My eyes can only see
You my eyes can only see you
Your face is always in view
For my eyes can only see you

I want you so much and I long for your touch
And your eyes tell me you want me too
Oh it may not be right but I'm too weak to fight
And my eyes can only see you

My eyes can only see you...
And my eyes can only see you

Take Me Back

Dolly Parton

© Owepar Music, BMI

Take me back all precious mem'ries to the days forever gone

I can still remember mama washin' on the washboard
On the backporch while us kids played in the yard
Mama always seemed to be so happy and content
She never seemed to mind that times were hard
She went about her work singing some old farvorite songs of hers
And often singing favorite songs for us
She was satisfied just being mama to us children
And the only woman daddy ever loved

Take me back to mama's bossom back to daddy's loving arms
Take me back all precious mem'ries to the days forever gone

I can still remember us a running to meet daddy
In the evening when his working day was done
When daddy saw us coming he would bend his tired old back
Holdin' out his arms and into them we'd run
He'd hold us for a minute we'd all walk home together
While mama waited for him at the door
And he was satisfied just being daddy to us children
And the man my mama lived her whole life for

Take me back to mama's bossom back to daddy's loving arms
Take me back all precious mem'ries to the days forever gone
Take me back all precious mem'ries to the days forever gone

Blackie Kentucky

Dolly Parton

© Owepar Music, BMI

In my hometown of Blackie Kentucky
He came passin' through one dark bloomy day
And I considered myself as lucky
When he told me he would take me away

And though he was older it made me difference
His promise of riches was all I could see
At last I could leave the coal mines of Kentucky
And know something better than sad poverty

Blackie Kentucky you know that I miss you
But there are lotta places in the world I'd like to see
So I must take this chance to be something more than nothing
But I'll always hold you in my memory

But I've never registed this sociable living
The friends that he knows they're all strangers to me
Thousands of miles from Blackie Kentucky
In a mansion with a husband that never loved me

He won't let my family and friends come to visit
Because they are country and poor he's ashamed
Oh but I'd give my luck Lord if I could just go see them
All its chance about me is my name

Blackie Kentucky oh Lord how I miss you
If I could come back home I'd never leave you anymore
I'd like to see my poor heart work in coal mine with daddy
And mama and the kids and the friends I knew before

My world is as black as the coal in Kentucky
He won't let me leave him there's no way to win
I'll take my whole life dear God please forgive me
But I've got to get back home to Blackie once again

I'd left him a note and in the morning he'll find it
It's my last request and he care to refuse me
I told him to bury me back in Blackie Kentucky
Where my family and my friends can come in visit me

Blackie Kentucky I'm coming home to you
But different from the way you remember me before
So make me a place and I lay me down to rest
And I'll sleep in your arms for evermore
I'll sleep in your arms for evermore

Gettin' Happy

Dolly Parton

© Owepar Music, BMI

Without a love to call my own my life was incomplete
It seems I couldn't help but think that love was not for me
My life took on a different twist when I met me a man that I couldn't resist
I didn't know why I have missed and I'm gettin' happy oh I'm gettin' happy

Yeah yeah I'm a gettin' happy all my lonely days are gone
I'm a gettin' happy no more lonely nights alone
I got someone to call my own and now my life is like a song
And he helps me sing along I'm gettin' happy oh I'm gettin' happy

Oh the people used to talk of love and I couldn't understand
About the fire and love desire of lovin' a good man
Oh but now I know just what it meant
Since I met me a man who was heaven's sent
Don't know where the sadness went I'm gettin' happy oh I'm gettin' happy

I'm a gettin' happy all my lonely days are gone...
[ steel ]
Yeah I'm a gettin' happy all my lonely days are gone...
Yeah I'm a gettin' happy all my lonely days are gone...

You're The One That Taught Me How To Swing

Dolly Parton

© Owepar Music, BMI

You were not content with me when I was like I used to be
I was too old fashion too simple and too plain
And so you took this country girl taught me all about the world
Yes you're the one that taught me how to swing

I used to never drink or smoke I'd even blushed your dirty jokes
I never wanted to take part in all those wordly games
But you dressed me up in sexy clothes took me where the swingers go
Yes you're the one that taught me how to swing

But you don't want me swingin' now but you're the one that taught me how
It was you that wanted me to change
I'm only what you've made of me your mistake was changin' me
Yes you're the one that taught me how to swing

You want me like I was before but I'm not like that anymore
This plain ole simple country girl won't never be the same
So don't expect me to go back cause it's a bit too late for that
And you're the one that taught me how to swing

But you don't want me swingin' now but you're the one that taught me how...
Yes you're the one that taught me how to swing taught me how to swing

Highway Headin' South

Porter Wagoner

© Porter Music, BMI

On a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie
Where the cotton blooms in spring and the snow don't fly
I'm gonna rest these chilly bones in southern sunshine
And live where the weather's warm until I die

North Dakota you've got my better years
Montana you've got five years of my life
But your subzero wind will never touch me again
A southern girl can't live on snow and ice

On a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie...

When I cross the Dixie line I'll throw away my coat
And my goods down underwear will have to go
I'll never live again where the weather chills you to the bone
I'm tired of livin' like an Eskimo

On a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie...
On a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie...
On a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie...

Once Upon A Memory

Dolly Parton

© Owepar Music, BMI

Once upon a mem'ry I kissed lips as sweet as honey
And lived in heaven with an angel for a little while
I knew love sweet and tender in a world of perfect splendor
Once upon a mem'ry before he said goodbye

Once upon a mem'ry in never Neverland
I have a love I know I'll never ever have again
A love like those you read in fairy tales filled with joy and laughter
Oh but he ended it and it broke my heart and I've cried forever after
(Once upon a mem'ry find a love beyond compare)

Oh then his sweet lips once the sweet lips know that heaven in his eyes
Turned then to a cold and distant stand
Gone is the love sweet and tender the world of heartache knows no splendor
Oh but once once upon a mem'ry I knew love beyond compare

Yes once upon a mem'ry never Neverland...
That was once upon a mem'ry

Sacred Memories

Dolly Parton

© Owepar Music, BMI

Sacred mem'ries often take me to the place where I grew up
And that little country church that I love so much
I used to go there every time that old church bell would ring
And I remember how I love the songs we used to sing

Like oh Lord you know I have no friend like you
If heaven's not my home dear Lord what will I do
The angels beckon me from heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore

They were singing Lord I'm coming on when I got saved
And when I got baptized they sang amzaing grace
And oh how sweet the sound when everybody would join in
And sang my favorite song if we never meet again

Where the charming roses bloom forever
And where separation comes no more
If we never meet again this side of heaven
I will meet you on that beutiful shore

My mama loved to sing and she sang clear and loud
I can close my eyes and I hear mama now
I recall the song my mama always loved so much
She always sang the loudest sangin' power in the blood

Oh there's power power wonder working power in the blood of the lamb
There is power power wonder working power in the precious blood of lamb
Sacred mem'ries
